Aa indicated by its title, this book gives a 
history of the rise, fall and revival of glass- 
painting in England, from the thirteenth to 
the nineteenth century. Subsequent to the six- 
teenth century attention is also given to the 
secular glass-paintings of the Continent, Stoiss 
and Flemish. The aim throughcyat had been 
rather to study small fragments of each period 
minutely, eocamining in each case the more 
reliable evidences of authenticity, and also 
drawing the attention of the reader to those less 
known evidences which alone can betray the 
spurious copy from the original glass. With- 
out cumbering the pages with a multiplicity 
of examples, the authors have dealt with their 
subject closely, with the intimate knowledge 
only to be gained by life long study, and with 
the hereditary aptness that might be expected 
from members of the fourth generation of a 
glass-painting famAly in which the craft has 
been handed down from father to son for close 
upon a centwry.

MY friends, Maurice and Wilfred Drake, have been flattering enough to ask me 
to write a foreword to their book, and it seems to me that the best manner of 
complying is to set forth, as I understand it, the scheme and object of their 
work. In this country the great pioneer of the subject of saints and their 
emblems was the Rev. Dr Husenbeth. The plan adopted by him is to give in each case 
the accredited emblem or emblems of the saints, citing at the same time the source of his 
authority. The compilers have developed Dr Husenbeth's method by inserting the names 
of places with which the different saints are associated, and by referring, moreover, to the 
printed sources where the life of each saint may be found most fully detailed. Cross 
references supply, alphabetically, first the name of the saint and his or her proper emblem, 
and secondly the emblems themselves, followed by the saint or saints to which they belong. 
While fully acknowledging their indebtedness to Dr Husenbeth, the compilers yet claim to 
have carried their researches a great deal farther, inasmuch as they have increased his list 
of fifteen hundred names to some four or five thousand. By suggesting emblems for saints 
who, like St. Britwald or St. Decuman, for example, have no specially personal nor dis- 
tinguishing emblem of their own, the extent of the book might have been increased 
indefinitely. But after deliberation the idea of doing so was abandoned — and wisely so, 
in my opinion. For the value and usefulness of an emblem consists in the fact that it is a 
prescriptive historical token, belonging to the recognised language of symbolism. It is 
not the habit of the modern mind to express itself in this way. To invent new emblems, 
then, where our fathers were content to do without them, would have been the merest 
fantasy and affectation. One may invent, but who shall give the novel notion currency ? 
Who make it intelligible? Without the stamp of general consensus it is vain. Every 
possible care has been taken to ensure accuracy, but it is obvious that in a work of this 
character and magnitude some errors must have managed to evade even the most vigilant 

The public may rest assured that this volume is the result of long and conscientious 
study ; and, that being so, it may well be expected to vindicate its claim to usefulness as a 
guide not only to the craftsman — the glass-painter or the image-maker, for instance — who 
requires a convenient list of saints and emblems for ready reference, but even to the more 

learned expert and ecclesiologist. 




IN the exercise of the handicrafts appertaining to ecclesiastical art the artist and 
craftsman often encounter much difificulty in the proper representation of sacred 
figures, and more particularly those of the lesser-known saints in the Calendar. 

Moreover, the ecclesiologist and antiquary often find the correct identification of 
many mediaeval figures by their distinguishing emblems even a more difficult task 
than the suitable representation of saints whose names and histories are known. 

Valuable as are the Rev. Alban Butler's twelve volumes, and the Rev. S. Baring- 
Gould's fifteen dealing with the lives of the saints, they are arranged chronologically, 
and in the majority of instances give no hint of any emblems at all. Dr. Husenbeth's 
Emblems of the Saints, though admirably arranged, does not go far enough into the 
matter for practical use. He only gives about fifteen hundred instances out of many 
thousands, and it is very naturally the obscure and little-known saints — just those who 
give most trouble to the craftsman, the ecclesiologist and the antiquary — who are un- 

Dr. Husenbeth's alphabetical listing of saints' names, followed by a cross-index, 
also alphabetical, of emblems, has been adopted in this volume, as incontestably the 
most convenient arrangement. To the saints' names and emblems are appended qualify- 
ing initials, feast day or days, and date of death, whenever this could be obtained. 
Further, where possible, the locality with which the saint is generally associated is 
named, and following each list of emblems are references to volumes wherein his or her 
life may be more exhaustively studied. 

To all accredited emblems which are already associated with the better-known saints 
have been added the names of places where such examples may be seen, and finally, as 
an aid to the craftsman only, the authors have ventured upon a new departure. In 
cases where there is no known precedent for the use of an emblem they have given 
briefly such particulars regarding the saint as may suggest a suitable emblem for identifi- 
cation. For this purpose the period or implements of martyrdom have been specified, 
and references made to any matters peculiar to his or her descent, teachings, or 
manner of life or death. 

The compilers desire to thank Mr. H. Tapley-Soper, Exeter City Librarian ; 
Mr. Lewis F. Tonar; and Dr. Philip Nelson, M.D,, F.S.A., for the help kindly 
afforded them whilst compiling this work.

was beaten, thrown into molten 
pitch and beheaded ; Hope cast 
into a furnace, but, being un- 
hurt, was slain with the sword, 
as also was Charity, who was 
followed by their mother. The 
Rev. Baring-Gould suggests that 
the legend is derived by vulgar 
tradition from the foundation, 
by Justinian, of the Church of 
Sta. Sophia at Constantinople. 
Sophia, Latinised, became 
Sapientia, and the three 
daughters of wisdom being

tion has ascribed personalities to
